War mongers terrorize us all
Our leaders heed us to their call
Stonewalling, voices calling
Drowning in the tears of the world

Big business calling every tune
Polluting here and to the moon
All nations, conservations
Drowning in the tears of the world

But your life's worth saving
We should start behaving
Like the truth's been told
By saviours through our time
Your downfall, you bring it on yourselves

All warnings fall upon deaf ears
Their scorn compounding my worst fears
No way out, hopeless souls shout
Drowning in the tears of the world

Drowning in the tears of the world
Tears of the world

Where's your love been sleeping?
Has your heart been weeping
Over all unrighteous action in the world
Where bad jazz seems all they're laying down?

No use in turning your blind eye
You feel the heat as you fry
Try your best, you'll find no rest
Drowning in the tears of the world
It's a sure bet, each pays his debts
Drowning in the tears of the world
